Living in the midwest, the end of summer has always signified the beginning of football season, and I really cannot wait. I love spending saturday mornings getting geared up, drinking bloody mary’s and meeting up with friends for the big game. Tomorrow we’re heading to a friend’s house for a big bash to kick off the college football season in our town and I’ll be there with bells on (and maybe some of the above fare).
Aside from the impending game, I’ve been struggling this week without any internet. Blog posts have been going up at a coffee shop or the office, and I hope you guys haven’t been too thrown off! I hope to get it back today (yay), and will resume regular early morning posting.
Around here this week:
- No machine, no cook homemade ice cream (make it for Labor Day!)
- A creative use for an old belt.
- How I organize all of my design ideas.
Have a great long weekend out there, guys!
